McNeese Innovation Animation

Sean Hicks, a recent graduate of McNeese State University, created an animation to visually represent the interdisciplinary collaboration and innovation taking place at the McNeese Innovation Center.



In order to visually portray innovation, this animation employs the metaphorical concept of a single seed growing into a mature tree to demonstrate how an idea grows and prospers through collaboration. Representing the 6 colleges at McNeese working together, the animation begins with a scientist discovering a new seed. A businesswoman manages the operation and brings in others who will help the seed flourish. The nurse nurtures and cares for the seed, while the educator cultivates the seed by providing an enriched environment. An engineer creates the system for growth that contributes to development. Finally, an artist synthesizes cultural values and interprets the interconnected nature of the system. The artist then portrays the beauty of this process for the world to understand. This project establishes how a diverse team working together can make a single idea “grow” into a meaningfully unique offering.
